Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often misdiagnosed, due to the stigma that OCD is solely about being “clean” and “organized.” This workshop will assist participants in identifying and diagnosing OCD, while recognizing common themes like Harm OCD, Sexual Orientation OCD, Religious/Scrupulosity OCD, Existential OCD, Relationship OCD, and more. Join us in learning the evidence-based treatment, Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), over the course of two days. Participants will learn how to apply ERP to all OCD themes.
